Tuesday Chatter Weekly – April 30, 2018


“Words rich in meaning can be cheap in sound effects.” – Dejan Stojanovic

Word of the weekparsimonious (adjective)-unwilling to spend money or use resources, stingy or frugal

synonyms-cheap, miserly, mean, close-fisted, penny-pinching, ungenerous, Scrooge-like

Parsimonious sheeple

in need of character surgery

still trying to connect the dots

neath their spilled ink

their life’s jukebox a broken record

from the fancy-schmancy

to a lack-luster existence

living in or out of a bubble

their rambling is cheap talk, but

 words lavish in meaning a gift

and not even tied with a bow

To quote Rumi

Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder

      I discovered the word in a British version crossword puzzle. I have fun with the events from yesteryear and try to select items most will be familiar with.

    Hi Eugenia, “Tuesday Chatter” is a fun post! Wonderful poem, and the lines “from the fancy-schmancy / to a lack-luster existence” are terrific. I really like the part, “And on this day…” I didn’t know that K-Mart had been around that long. ~ Mia

      Thank you, Mia. I am delighted you like it. Tuesday Chatter Weekly gives me the opportunity to write my rant poetry. 🙂

    ‘In need of character surgery’ makes me think of the general population. Folks are so rude today and it’s only going to get worse if the world is allowed to stand. These same rude people need to apply the golden rule to life but in order for them to do that, they first must have a change of heart. Thanks for visiting and for supporting me throughout the A2Z challenge last month. Gosh, is it May already? Where does the time go?! Have a good day, my friend!

      Yes, I agree, Cathy, rudeness seems to be the new “look at me”. Have a great week!

    Eugenia, you mentioned, “yesteryear” in one of your comments above. Here’s a link to a post inspired by Edie Sedgwick. Thank you for the opportunity to share! ~ Mia

    After setting up my bill pay for May I think I need to be more parsimonious.
    Feels good to be back at the Cafe!
